Rain Bird Services, a division of Rain Bird Corporation, has introduced Rain Bird Live Streaming – live online irrigation training conducted by professional trainers. These pre-scheduled, in-depth technical training sessions cover relevant irrigation topics and allow contractors to ask questions and get personalized answers in real time.

“While the popularity of live-streamed training has increased over time, it’s probably never been more relevant than it is today,” said Patrick Hibbs, marketing manager for Rain Bird’s Contractor Division. “And, we understand how important proper education is for success in the irrigation installation and maintenance field. With our new Rain Bird Live Streaming training, we’re helping contractors continue to get the training they need even when they can’t get to a classroom.”

Rain Bird’s Live Streaming training classes let contractors interact directly with expert irrigation trainers using the equipment and tools needed for the job. Contractors can get real-world technical knowledge and learn the same top-notch skills that are promoted by the Irrigation Association.

Currently available 90-minute, non-manufacturer-specific classes include Decoder Troubleshooting, Electrical Troubleshooting and Valve Troubleshooting. Rain Bird Factory Trained classes are also being offered, including a six-hour IQ4 Central Control Expert course, with new courses in development. Classes are available on multiple dates and times, allowing contractors, distributors and public agencies to choose the sessions that work best with their busy schedules. Customized live streaming classes for groups are also available upon request by contacting training@rainbird.com.

“For more than 15 years, Rain Bird Services has delivered industry-leading irrigation training in classrooms around the world,” said Robert Pfeil, marketing group manager for Rain Bird Services. “Now we’ve taken our proven classroom training model and made it possible to get the same expert-level training right from your office or your home. We want to make irrigation training affordable and easily available for anyone.”

Classes are going on now. To see the current schedule or register for any Rain Bird Live Streaming classes, visit www.rainbirdservices.com/rain-bird-live-streaming/. To learn about other irrigation training options available from Rain Bird Services, visit www.rainbirdservices.com.
